Description New Flyer of America Inc. (New Flyer) is recalling certain 2017 XD40, XDE40, XN40, XT60, and 2016-2017 XDE60 transit buses. The air brake hose connections for the front axle ABS modulator valves may not be properly tightened, possibly resulting in the air brake hose disconnecting. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Consequences If the brake hose disconnects from the ABS modulator valve, there will be no brake force applied to either of the front axle brake assemblies, lengthening the needed braking distance and increasing the risk of a crash.
Corrective action New Flyer will notify owners, and will reconnect the air hose using the proper tightness, free of charge. The recall began on January 11, 2018. Owners may contact New Flyer customer service at 1-204-224-6706. New Flyer's number for this recall is R18-001.
Notes Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
